Last Crop of 2014.......

It was the Bramford Christmas crop yesterday and hopefully an enjoyable day was had by all, with everyone going home with a prize. The day had some sadness to it as one of our ladies Linda, sadly passed away in November of cancer. Her wish for her craft stash was to be sold, giving the ladies at the crop first choice and all monies raised to go to the charity of Linda's choice Wolverstone Wish. Our ladies did us proud Linda and raised £450 on the day with hopefully the remainder of the stash selling next month. Our ladies felt sad going through Linda's stash but were pleased with the goodies they bought.
This stunning blue Orchid was kindly given to me by two lovely ladies who come to our crop and who over the past 6 years come to know and class as 'friends'. The photo does not show you the true blue colour it is utterly stunning. A big thank you to Sue and Dawn for this, it now sits in my lounge for everyone to admire.
My Christmas shopping is almost done, just two gift cards left to get tomorrow. Everything is wrapped and delivered....even better. My time this week is limited as i'm working four night shifts. Tomorrow Andy and I are off to see the final installment of the Hobbit, which I'm looking forward to and as Emily's home from Uni for Christmas it's a KFC for tea for us all.

Well my friends I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and here's to a good 2015. xx

Hi Janina, what a glorious orchid, a lovely gift.
Sad to have lost one of your crafty friends, but fabulous that though knowing her that money was raised for her charity, and what a great idea to sell of her stash.
Hope you enjoy the Hobbit. Have a wonederful Christmas with your family, hugs Kate x
